1100 Lumen Micro Light finished with beamshots...

Well...I finally got it up and running...

Done with the square one. I'm diggin it...very nice!


Square one:



TrailTech in-line switch and connectors:


Batteryspace.com battery PCB with "fuel gauge":


I have actually PlastiDipped the battery now A'la Scar...it turned out really nice.



Quickie back yard beam shots--
f4.0
ISO-100
Daylight
6.00sec

Reference [SSCP7 at 2.8amps]
About 12" to the right of the camera:


L332 Square about 12" to the left of the camera:



SSCP7 right next to the camera to illustrate the beam intensity:


Triple XP-G right next to the camera:




I initially installed the frosted medium optics, but it was so much flood that I couldn't fathom using it on the trail. Reminded me of an over-volted halogen. Beamshots above are with the clear narrow optics. Much more useable beam.



I think I'm gonna sell it so I can build more. (I have an illness) Here's the link.

Crimeny that's bright! I wonder what kind of battery life you'd get in real world conditions.

LOL...it's about 1.5hrs + on a 2-cell 18650 pack. If you ran it on a MagicShine'esque 4cell pack, you'd get about 3-3.5hrs. It's a much more efficient LED than the SSC P7, so in achieving similar brightness...you waste less energy.
